The Impact Of Competitive Analysis On Web Design & How To Perform It Properly [DesignRush QuickSights]

73% of companies invest in web design to gain a competitive edge. DesignRush gathered tips from web design experts on how to do a competitive analysis for effective web design.

MIAMI, Nov. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- There are now 1.13 billion websites online, as per Netcraft's November 2022 Web Server Survey. And yet, there are only 10 positions on the first page of Google. For 73% of companies, Adobe reveals, web design is key to standing out from the competition.

DesignRush, a B2B marketplace connecting businesses with agencies, leveraged its 16,000-agencies-strong network for quick insights – or "QuickSights" – on the importance of competitive analysis and how to achieve an effective web design that will rank well.


Consumr Buzz CEO Jeffrey Diebner recommends that businesses examine competitors' top features carefully and choose only those that will work for them.

"One of the most important aspects of a successful online business is staying ahead of your competition. This is why competitor analysis is so important in the early stages of web design," said Diebner. "However, finding useful features on your competitor's websites can be a challenge. Of course, you want the best features that everyone is using. But instead of thinking you need them all, make a list of the ones that you feel can provide significant value to your business and weigh the pros and cons of each one. Be diligent with this step."


Nika Agency CEO and Founder Ali Tassavor shares his agency's methodology for auditing competitors to find opportunities.

"We always select a few competitors and audit them for their approach to branding, messaging, and website design/functionality, as well as an approach to content — using our 5C methodology: clarity, consistency, compelling, competitiveness, and credibility," said Tassavor. "We use this process as a starting point to find opportunity spaces. Finding opportunity space is the easiest way to differentiate yourself from the competitor."


According to Simplixi® CEO Ahmed Elghobashy, companies should also look for opportunities to improve based on what competitors are doing better.

"Competitive analyses are great, not just because they provide useful knowledge about the strengths of your competitors but also for helping you understand what you do well and what areas need improvement," said Elghobashy. "They can help you make strategic decisions that improve user experience on your website and ultimately give people a reason to choose you over other brands."


For Nicholas Noe, chief of marketing & design at NB Media Solutions, their company uses GAP analysis to identify ways to optimize a website.

"The most important competitive analysis tool we use is a GAP analysis from one of our various software applications. A GAP analysis allows us to create big opportunities for SEO for our clients and transform web designs with vital accompanying on-page text."


Bizcope Founder and CEO Nahid Hasan says that if you want the best web design, you have to learn from the best web designs.

"If you want to be the best, you have to learn from the best," said Hasan. "So a great web design will always take into account competitive analysis. Competitive analysis helps identify opportunities and potential areas that a web design can bring. It can be used to benchmark against similar websites to understand what features and functionality they offer and how this compares to your own website. This can involve studying their web design, their user experience such as CTA buttons and colors, fonts and spaces, copywriting and visuals, forms and lead magnets, testimonials and credentials, mobile and tablet views, and of course, their SEO. By understanding what your competitors are doing well, you can make your website even better."
